To the Editor,
The 2020 lieutenant governor’s race is not about the left versus the right. It is about the past versus the future. A recent article, where I learned about Sen. Ashe’s decision, illustrates the deep divide between the prison guards of the past and our forward-looking “Small Towns*Big Hearts” campaign.
I entered this race expecting to take on an entrenched incumbent, not to capitalize on political opportunity. If you stand on the courage of your convictions, then you do not wait for an opening, you make one.
